The place is cool and if you are looking for a “fancy” family restaurant in Villa de leyva this is a good option. Food is good but too pricey for what they offer. T

We had a family meal late afternoon in semana santa. The waiter had good recommendation, the food was spectacular. We ordered the guacamole, the chicken, lamb barbacoa, boeuf bourgionne and tacos longaniza. We could not agree which one was better. Highly recommend

If you want to have a special treat, come here. The food is amazing. Most of the dishes are prepared in a charcoal oven which adds a great flavor. Even the pizzas are made in this oven.

Service, ambience, food – everything is good. Unique barbecue style, their specialty, but the other dishes are equally good

This restaurant was fantastic. The turkey and lamb cooked in their underground barbecues were delicious! The staff was friendly and attentive. The outdoor seating was beautiful and comfortable. I highly recommend Mercado Municipal. It was the best restaurant in our 3 weeks in Colombia!

There seemed to be a problem with electricity but the meat we ordered was inedible. Good salad but a disappointment

Coming from Los Angeles, my husband and I can inadvertently adapt a food snobbery or jadedness in restaurant dining, as we have a Mecca of flavors and ingredients that make up the food scene. So it was especially delightful to find ourselves at Mercado Municipal,...More

It’s such a shame because the place is nice, the menu is promising, and expectations are a lot higher... I do not recommend this place because the chefs are not good at all, and even with good ambient and good service, this is a Restaurant,...More

VDL was not a late night city when we visited. I suggest you make sure what you consider late is not later than they do.
